Aside from adhering to current occupational safety and health laws, effective dissemination of safety information intended to prevent incidents is one of the keys to ensuring the health and well-being of any economic endeavor. This study investigates a plant explosion that killed six people, injured 38 more and completely destroyed a manufacturing facility that employed several hundred people and was an important part of the supply chain for a global corporation. The findings suggest that there were tangible opportunities to virtually eliminate the risks that contributed to the disaster.
